Lifting the lid: A new £40 scan claims to reveal hidden helmet damage after an accidental drop

“For the first time ever, a company is offering a service to scan your helmet’s shell to identify signs of hidden damage or degradation.

Before, if you accidentally dropped your lid there was no way of checking if the composite fibre shell had been weakened, leaving manufacturers’ only safe course of action to recommend a replacement.

This left riders with a conundrum: fork out to replace a lid that potentially wasn’t compromised, or risk continuing to ride with a helmet that potentially was.

However, a new British venture – The Helmet Inspection Company – is now offering a service that could bring about an end to this safety dilemma.

Using a non-destructive technique, the company’s £39.99 scan reveals damage and defects beneath the outer surface of the shell which is invisible to the naked eye and the results will tell you if your helmet is still fit for purpose.”
